I wrote it for printk()s and ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT() to log.

if (! _cnt) {
ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT((ACPI_DB_INFO,
"nid of <%s> is not detected.\n",
acpi_device_bid(node_dev)));
goto cancel;
}
...
status = acpi_attach_data(handle, acpi_numa_data_handler, data);
if (ACPI_FAILURE(status)) {
printk(KERN_ERR"Failed to attach NUMA data for <%s>.\n",
acpi_device_bid(node_dev));
goto cancel;
}

printk(KERN_INFO"Container <%s> is NUMA node.\n",
acpi_device_bid(node_dev));

The reason why the acpi_walk_namespace() is used here was to
find a container object which is identical to a NUMA node. My code
was assuming that a container having CPU and/or memory was
NUMA node sinece the current Linux seemed to assume so.

Sorry, that's a stuff that I forgot to remove. I will remove it.
